Matt and I are investing in stationery for our business and we decided to look at Arabesque of Naples. Arabesque specializes in all kinds of stationery from invitations to notebooks to thank you cards. They have an entire wall of portfolios with many different invitation designs. If you are getting married and haven’t chosen your invitations yet, you simply must make your way down to Arabesque on Fifth Avenue (right next to Altin’s Cafe). Their letterpress invitations are stunning. They also have engraved, thermography, and hand caligraphy invitations.
Matt and I walked in and were graciously greeted by Sheryl Sashin. We told her we were looking for letterpress business cards and stationery and she showed us the examples from Crane’s, Elum, Smock, and Julie Holcomb. Nice stationery is one of a kind and has a certain feel to it. The business cards we looked at were as thick as a piece of gum and had a simple elegance that cannot be matched. Elum and Crane’s paper is made from cotton and Smock paper is made from bamboo – both eco friendly materials.
We are still deciding on the style and design of our new business cards, but I will post pictures of them as soon as we have them. And in the mean time, you should check out Arabesque on your trip to downtown Naples. They are located at 350 Fifth Avenue South. http://www.ArabesqueofNaples.com
